It is increasingly recognised that the establishment of the gut microbiota in early life has substantial impact on subsequent health and may play a critical role in immunity, metabolism and development. The shaping of the human gut microbiome is a highly complex process, but breastfeeding is thought to play an important role. This BNF webinar explored the interesting relationship between breastfeeding, the infant gut microbiome and health.
